If all else fails, try one of these (in order):
If one of the above works, you don't have to try the next one. If you continue to have issues, check your firewall and router to ensure it is not blocking outbound 6667. Zonealarm blocks IRC by default; simply go to the IM Security and uncheck "Block IRC". For help with other firewalls and routers, check the manual for your product.
If port 6667 fails, you can replace 6667 with 8080. For SSL users the port is +6697.
I will lock any threads concerning this issue as this should solve it. ONLY POST if none of the above works. Thank you.
